  • BMO Financial Group

    Having a positive impact on our communities is one of BMO’s core values. It says something fundamental about who we are and what matters to us, individually and collectively. Every year our employees are invited to “skip work, do good” and take time away from the office – during business hours – to participate in one of 6,000 volunteer activities arranged by the bank. BMO’s community focus is also reflected in our Annual Employee Giving Campaign, which allows employees to financially support organizations they care about – in particular the United Way – through payroll deductions. Ours is one of the largest employee giving programs in North America.

When over 14,000 TELUS team members come together to volunteer in their communities, it turns into 500,000 hours of difference making.
